Hello! I am Rebekah R Jones, welcome to my blog! The most important thing to me is that you know how deeply LOVED you are!
I am passionate about helping you encounter Jesus through creativity. I am blessed to teach Bible art journaling as a life-changing way to connect with God through creativity. My goal is to get you confidently creating and engaging in the Word and being transformed by it. I believe it is important to know we can trust who is pouring into us spiritually. Let me give you some insight into who I am…
I was born into a wonderful Christian family. At just 3 1/2 years old, I dedicated my life to God after I had an encounter which has marked my life for Him ever since. Jesus has always been my best friend and I’ve always loved pursuing Him.
I started hungrily studying the Bible as a young person, using a homeschool curriculum my parents published, (which I’ve adapted and is in Heart To Freedom!). By the time I was 12, I had given my first sermon and by 16 years old I was regularly teaching in local schools and even was commissioned by the government to write curriculum. I’ve always loved learning and teaching.
I went on to Bible college, discipleship school and ministry school. Yes, all three! Since then I have served in a variety of ministry leadership positions including being a youth pastor, a children’s pastor and even the Director of Education at a pregnancy care center. Along the way, I learned to take my creative experience and love of the arts instilled by my mom and grandma and use it to help people make meaningful and deeper connection with God.
I now run a full time art ministry, dedicated to helping people like you, encounter Jesus through creativity, so you can spread God’s love out of the overflow of His goodness in your life.
I’ve been blessed to have walked with God through great loss, huge victories, trials, seasons of waiting and of trusting God at His word, and even being bed-ridden to being dramatically healed overnight by God’s power. I’ve “journeyed much” with God in these years and have a richness and depth in my friendship with Him that I want to share with you. I’ve learned secrets to living in spiritual freedom and I’m able to help you do the same!
I have a passion for making complex things simple and for helping everyone encounter and embrace God’s deep love for them. I really do not care what your own spiritual background is. If you are hungry and open, you are welcome to come drink up whatever you can. I’ll pour into you no matter what’s going on in your life and what doctrine or theology you’ve embraced up to this point. If you feel “young”, or “old” in your Christian faith – it makes no difference. There is room for you here. All I ask is that you make a decision to come thirsty.
To be clear about my Biblical beliefs… I believe there is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator, and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving, and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent – one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit. I profess Jesus Christ to be my Lord and Savior. I believe in Him as the one and only Son of God and that He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to introduce God’s kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected, and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today in the presence of God the Father. I believe that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God. Because of this, I believe in the victorious, redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy – sin, lies, sickness, and torment. I’ve experienced it for myself. If you’re comfortable with me teaching from this stance, or aren’t sure what this all means but are open to learning… you’re in the right place!
My doctrinal and theological background is rooted in fairly Charismatic Christian roots with much emphasis on the Word but for simplicity… I believe the WHOLE Bible, (you could say that includes the maps and concordance!). I believe nothing should be added to the Word of God and that we must allow the Spirit of God to guide us and lead us into all truth. That means we must press into friendship with God, if we are to live right before Him.
I’m blessed to be the 5th generation in ministry on one side of my family and 4th generation in ministry on the other side of my family. My great-grandpa was a key leader in the Healing Revival which swept across America and beyond in the 1950’s-60’s. I grew up literally surrounded by the evidence of God’s goodness and His miraculous power to change our lives when we come hungry to receive from Him. I believe my rich heritage has allowed me to stand on their shoulders, so to speak, and offer you more at perhaps a younger age than thought possible. I’d be honored to pour into you and help you take your relationship with God to where you dream of.
With over 20 years of curriculum writing experience, I have been featured in magazines, am a contributing artist in the book, The Complete Guide To Bible Journaling and I have a class with thousands of students on Scrapbook.com, (the world’s largest online scrapbooking store). I have my own online school dedicated to Bible art journaling and spiritual growth. I’m honored to have thousands of happy students in my online courses and tens of thousands more subscribers on YouTube.
All this amounts to creative experience and grounded Christian relationship with God which I believe you can trust. I’m excited to help you step up your spiritual growth in such a fun and creative way and to connect with our amazing community!
I know you will find this ministry to be a place where you can be resourced, taught and encouraged in your journey of creativity with God. He is so in love with you and looks for opportunities to lavish you with His love as you position your heart toward Him. Creative experience or none, you are welcome!
You are loved,
